Remind Yourself Not To Overeat Using Messages On Place Cards

This Sparked Me!

SparkPeople recommends eating more slowly, and I've been making an effort to chew more thoroughly. To remind myself to do this, I made a little card saying, "Slow down". I attached it to a place card holder that I keep with my condiments.

Setting it in front of me when we sit down to eat reminds me to look at it during my meal, and I chew more thoroughly.

It is working really well: I feel full before I have overeaten.

MORE INFORMATION:
With my place card holder, you can use both sides. On my cards I have:
"Slow down"; "Chew 100 times"; "Enjoy your food"; "Put down your fork between bites."
Here is the kind of place card holder I use; it has an alligator clip: http://tinyurl.com/4xxxccb
